One By One I'll Knock You Out

In keeping with my proclivity for being all up on Michel Gondry's jock, (have I hyped his Directors Series video yet? Because it's pretty incredible if I haven't. It's seriously mind-blowing stuff. Your brain will explode in the face of its awesomeness. And that's a guarantee.) here's his video for Beck's "Cellphone's Dead," from the highly recommended album, the Information.

And, as long as I'm at it, here's his video for Macca's "Dance Tonight," from his newest album, Memory Almost Full, which I haven't heard yet. You know, the iTunes commercial song. That one. I've read good to mediocre reviews of the album. I really don't expect much from Sir Paul, really. He has nothing to prove anymore. Dude made Ram, which sits comfortably alongside Nillsson Schmillson, Remain In Light and Bee Thousand in the Big Red Robot Untouchable Albums Hall Of Fame. Which is not really real, but let's not spoil the magic, shall we? Oh yeah, and he also wrote some of the best popular music in the history of forever. So yeah, there's that, too. I say if Paul wants to make mediocre albums until he dies, that's fine with me. If anybody has earned that right, it's him. Ram on. Smile away.

Anyway, here's the video, which bears more than a passing resemblance to Gondry's video for the White Stripes' "Dead Leave & the Dirty Ground." Also, Natalie Portman is in this video (oh, how I crushed on you in my younger days...) as well as the guy who played the guy who became Dwight once the Office came over to the colonies (got all of that?). The one that was in Pirates Of the Carribean and its sequels that we shall not speak of due to their general horribleness.

Enjoy.

See, I got through this whole post without making fun of Paul's one-legged ex-wife, too. Because I have class like that and whatnot. Aren't you proud of me? I sure am.
